I soon realised I work best in a quiet environment where I wasn't being distracted by 20 something girls chatting about their sun bed sessions in preparation for their Ibiza getaway or young couples navigating their blossoming relationship. So when Paul suggested I buy a desk to work from home I was super excited, what with the free coffee on tap, toys for F and a place to spread out and get stuck in. Thankfully we have an over proportioned bedroom for the size of our flat, allowing the desk to sit in our bay window where there's lots of natural light and the greenery of outside.
I chose a desk with trestle legs with the ability to have the table top flat or tilted, depending on the type of work I'm doing and filled it with things I find inspirational or could use as storage, like these vintage style cases. I always tend to have coffee or fruit beside me when working to keep up my energy levels, as well as a notebook and pencil for jotting down ideas and scheduling projects. Keeping a stack of magazines to hand is also a great way to grab some quick inspiration and of course there is a photo of the the boy himself, who is my whole reason for working from home in the first place.
Having a desk at home is certainly a luxury and sanctuary all in one. I'd love to hear what you have on your desk and what makes your working day fun.
